I created a new Math Problem Solving Pack for November (better late than never??) and December:

The children count the turkeys or gingerbread man and write a number to show how many. Screen Shot 2013-11-30 at 9.06.29 PM

The children cut out the 5 turkeys at the bottom and glue them in two places to show their understanding of the math sentence at the top of the page. Screen Shot 2013-11-30 at 9.05.31 PM

The children color the squares in a variety of combinations (3-10) to make the total number.  They then write the math sentence on the lines. Screen Shot 2013-11-30 at 9.06.00 PM

Here, the children count the turkeys or gingerbread men and write the number.

This is a simpler version of creating combinations–this time the children do not need to write the math sentence.  I will have my students complete this page before completing the page above. Screen Shot 2013-11-30 at 9.05.47 PM

The children practice writing the numbers from 1-10, 11-20, and 1-20.

The children use the included gingerbread ruler (they cut it off the bottom of the page) and use it to measure the pictures at the top of the page.  The lines are included to show two examples so the children know where to begin measuring. Screen Shot 2013-11-30 at 9.07.08 PM

The children circle the group that has more or less. Screen Shot 2013-11-30 at 9.07.25 PM

Here, the children use words to describe the shapes. Screen Shot 2013-11-30 at 9.07.37 PM

After describing the shapes, these pages help the children to tell how these shapes are alike and different. Screen Shot 2013-11-30 at 9.07.49 PM
